« Does the $78 Sangean RCR-3 Have the Same 3-Inch Speaker as the $126 Sangean WR-2? | Main | The Problem with the Grundig S450DLX: Noise »

September 14, 2014



From the Sony ICF2002/7600D to the 7600GR, Grundig YB400, G3, RS DX398/Sangean ATS909, DX402/ATS505, to the Tecsun PL660..I've had a lot of that size and class of radio, and I'd have to say the G5/E5 was by far my favorite. Great for AM/MW DX (for it's size), smooth analog type tuning, good sound, and great dynamic range put this one at the top IMHO.
Someone's going to get a good radio.

The Professor

As you say you rarely used this radio, I'm assuming you don't have much interest in shortwave listening, as this radio (and its first version the Degen 1103) is just the best bang for your buck SW radio out there, at least as far as sensitivity is concerned.

It's not full of features and it doesn't have a room filling speaker, but it was a real breakthrough in portable radio technology a few years ago. Darned good on AM too. I hear FM reception is outstanding, but I don't much listen to that.


I 100 percent agree with you
